Fund for SAIC

The Fund for SAIC impacts the largest number of artists and designers by raising money to support our current students. Alumni, parents and friends of the School raise nearly $1 million per year for the Fund for SAIC, to make possible what tuition and other funding sources cannot. 

Gifts to the Fund for SAIC provide grants and financial aid to deserving students who might not otherwise be able to attend. They allow us to improve equipment and technology at the school that students use to expand their practices and best express themselves. By giving to the Fund you are investing in the academics, student life, and free programming for all Chicagoans that together make the SAIC experience whole. 
We count on the annual support of you and the entire SAIC community to remain one of the most influential colleges of art and design in the world.
